7 days!!

7 days from today we will be getting ready to board a plane in Des Moines to begin our journey. There is so much to do and so little time to do it. We want to have everything done by Thursday night when we go to bed because Friday will be all about spending the entire day with the kids. We will go so fun stuff in the morning, then HuHot for lunch then more fun stuff in the afternoon and end the evening at Chuck E Cheese with Grandma & Grandpa and possibly Joe's brother and his family!! It will be a fun day. Then on Saturday we will wake early (if we sleep at all) and be out the door by 5:30 am for the two hour drive to the airport!!!

There is so much to do so I think I will keep a running list here to keep me on task!! Be sure to get on my case if some of these things aren't crossed off the list every day!! LOL

Finish Fence in Backyard
Finish putting trim up in the Bathroom
Clean the Garage
Clean Refrigerator

Reorganize Basement after water last week (thank goodness it is all dry!)
Tear out drywall in basement

Finish Laundry
Get Girls room and Boys rooms organized and ready
Grocery Shopping
Clean Clean Clean
Print out documents we have to take along
Power of Attorneys for kids while we are gone
Notes to School
Take Cans back to recycling
Meet with Insurance Adjuster
Meet with Josie's Social Worker for Visit
Install New Sump Pump

I think that does it for today anyway!! Come back tonight or tomorrow and see what we have gotten accomplished. Let's hope we have a good chunk crossed off our list tonight. We wanted to take the kids bowling tonight, but it depends on how much we get done today and how tired we are!!!

Go Brigitte Go!!! I can't believe you're here already! After hearing about your basement, I'm glad all I had to do extra was that dang larynx project, now! How awful!!
